Something that either made your shins go funny or caused a loss of taste in socks.

She wrote again but this time she is Nastiusha Gentle. She gets around because it's a different email address, but she still wants to refresh my memoirs.

She must have fallen for my charms but I can't help thinking she might be dangerous and with multiple personalities,trying to lure me with sweet sounding names.

Scouse is on a 'eat more healthily' kick but he doesn't trust himself, so has asked me not to buy him any sweets/lollies/chocolates. Doesn't stop him rummaging around in the fridge looking though.

I was in the lounge room a while ago and heard the familiar rustle rustle, then an 'ah-ha!' He'd found something well wrapped in an isolated corner and thought he'd struck gold.

I wish I'd had a camera on hand when I told him that it was the samples I'd collected for my bowel cancer testing kit

DH has got an actual in person interview next week, after a couple of phone interviews, with a company. He has also got a phone interview with another company, later this week. I hope things are starting to look up for him, after being out of work for 2 1/2 months. Loads of experience in his field, so I hope that swings it for him. Can you keep your fingers crossed for him, please.
